Morning Announcements
Thursday, August 16, 2018

Please stand for our morning prayer

We remember that we are in the presence of God.

Let us pray together as a school community in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Lord God, your spirit of wisdom fills the earth
and teaches us in your ways. Look kindly upon the teachers who have welcomed us into their classes for this new school year. Give them the wisdom to share their knowledge with gentle patience and endeavor always to bring us truth to when our minds are eager as well as when they stray. Grant that our teachers may not grow frustrated as they help us to follow Jesus Christ, the way, the truth and the life, forever and ever.

We ask all these things in Jesus’ name. Amen.

In the name of the Father, of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen!

Saint Stanislaus, pray for us.

Will everyone please join me as we recite together the Pledge of Allegiance.

“I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

Please remain standing until the dress and grooming check have been completed.

There will be a meeting for all seniors in the small dining room today during second lunch.
